TONIGHT: Jarvis Cocker brings geeky back at The Wiltern

Pulp – Common People

Pulp – Common People

so fcuking-A if Jarvis Cocker isn’t the coolest nerd alive and he’s playing L.A. for the first time in it seems like forever at the Wiltern tonight. Cocker was largely responsible for the amazingness that was Pulp, and his live set at Pitchfork in the sweltering Chicago heat last year was something to behold (mind you that mods do NOT wear shorts). (p.s. if any of you crazy kids out there have a copy that set, could you get it to me? i want that house song he closed with soooo baaaddddd. i’ll be your best friend? well, not really, but i might talk to you if there aren’t any other kids around.)

...Jarvis doing his best Robert Evans.
